The International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSCs), a joint ILO and WHO activity with the support from the European Commission, is now available in 11 languages in addition to English. The most recent language addition is Korean. The technical translation of the English collection of ICSCs into Korean language is the collaborative work of the South Korea’s Ministry of Employment and Labor (MOEL) and the Korea Occupational Safety & Health Agency (KOSHA).

The ICSCs are data sheets intended to provide essential safety and health information on chemicals in a clear and concise way. The primary aim of the Cards is to promote the safe use of chemicals in the workplace. The main target users are workers and those responsible for occupational safety and health. ICSCs are prepared in English by a consortium of scientists from specialized scientific institutions concerned with occupational safety and health in different countries. Subsequently, national institutions translate the Cards into different languages.
